Our charity supports young people around 18 to 35 years old. 2050 Climate Group’s vision is that by 2050, young people will be active citizens, having led and accelerated the progress to a just and sustainable society. Since we started in 2014, we have been volunteer-driven and the majority of our programme of work is delivered by a large committed group of operational volunteers with key support from the board of trustees and a small staff team.
2050 Climate Group has been working to empower Scotland’s Young Leaders to lead action on tackling our climate crisis and our work continues to evolve. In 2016 the group delivered its first major programme of work, our award-winning Young Leaders Development Programme (YLDP). In 2018, 2050 Climate Group undertook its first international project in partnership with Malawi Scotland Partnership (MaSP), the Malawi Climate Leaders Project. This is an exciting opportunity to join us as we prepare for activities in the lead up to COP26 in Glasgow later this year.
This role requires an individual experienced in delivering international development projects and partnerships. The person recruited will co-ordinate the fourth year of the Malawi Climate Leaders Project in partnership with the Malawi-based staff team, and will be responsible for leading 2050 Climate Group’s side of the project delivery in Scotland, including securing funding to continue the project. The role will require fast paced delivery of milestones and strong experience in a similar or project-based role is essential.
The role will require close working with volunteers in Scotland and Malawi, therefore occasional evening and weekend work will be required. If Covid-19 restrictions significantly ease, the role may also require management and co-ordination of country exchange visits.
The post-holder will have a unique opportunity to work with our trustees, volunteers and staff to help shape and deliver key aspects of our international work programme, including planning and co-ordinating activities in the lead up to COP26 in Glasgow later this year.
Reports to: Board of Trustees
Over the past 10 years, Edinburgh Garden Partners (EGP) has developed a unique approach to addressing the risks of social isolation in our communities. By matching volunteers who are looking for a space to grow with local garden owners who have a space to share, our garden partnerships create meaningful and lasting social connections between people of different ages and cultural backgrounds. It is the shared interest in gardening and the exchange of skills, knowledge and life experience that make our garden partnerships so special and rewarding for everyone involved.
We are looking for a Project Coordinator who is committed to our values and has the skills and energy to develop the organisation and further EGP’s mission. This is an exciting and dynamic role which blends responsibility for project delivery and day-to-day operations, with longer-term planning and development.
You will therefore have skills in strategic leadership, experience of project management and volunteer management, and be highly organised and capable of working with a large degree of autonomy. You will also be a natural collaborator who thrives on building good relationships and partnerships with colleagues, multiple stakeholders and external organisations.
The Project Coordinator will report to the Board of Trustees, working with them on strategy and fundraising. You will also have line management responsibility for EGP’s Volunteering Development Coordinator, working closely together to create new garden partnerships, facilitate the matching process and to ensure safe and supported garden sharing experiences for all.
This is a permanent position, subject to continued funding. We anticipate filling this as a full-time post (35 hours per week) but are willing to consider alternative arrangements for the right candidate. EGP strives to be an employer that promotes the wellbeing of its staff. The postholder will receive an annual holiday entitlement of 25 days plus 8 public holidays, employer’s pension contribution, as well as opportunities for flexible working, training and development.
This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a ground-breaking approach to mental health services across Edinburgh. The South West Thrive Welcome Team brings together a collaboration of partner organisations to improve the mental health and wellbeing of the people in South West Edinburgh, to enable them to live well and fulfil their potential. This partnership is between Space, SAMH and the Edinburgh Health & Social Care Partnership working under NHS governance.
Our organisations share a commitment to the Thrive vision and values of trust, respect, collaboration, person-centeredness, innovation, and compassion. Together we deliver a multi-disciplinary and multi-agency response so that citizens receive the right help at the right time.
What is Peer support?
Peer support is intentionally using lived experience to support others and is well known within recovery and mental health services across the world. Peer Work within Thrive is centred around supporting citizens to identify and work towards achievable and meaningful recovery goals, drawing on mutual resources as peers and utilising a range of recovery tools, techniques and experience.
We believe the peer support relationship should facilitate the sharing of personal experiences in a way which is purposeful, modelling personal responsibility, self-awareness, self-belief, self-advocacy and the sharing or teaching of coping, self-help and self-management techniques.
Peer working should also help citizens to identify and overcome fears within a relationship of empathy, trust and honesty, and challenge negative self-talk.
The main role of the Thrive Peer Worker is to use your own lived experience of mental health and recovery solutions to reduce the toll of poor mental health, and to promote good mental health practices, with citizens and within our communities. It is also about promoting the understanding and values of peer work.
This is achieved by providing short term, one-to-one, emotional and practical mental health support to citizens across South West Edinburgh, providing a space to discuss issues at their own pace, explore skill development and tools to support citizens to manage their mental health challenges
Peer support workers play a central role in the planning and provision of quality, recovery focused support to people who use the service.
